“Do Yourself a Huge Favor, Strengthen Those Pelvic Floor Muscles”

"Do Yourself a Huge Favor, Strengthen Those Pelvic Floor Muscles" was one of the more memorable Edgy Mama columns I've written for Xpress, both because of the subject matter and the local response to it. The subject — how women can strengthen their pelvic floor muscles to avoid incontinence and improve their sex lives — is a delicate one, but what blew me away was how many women had been embarrassed to ask even their doctors for help until they read my column. Countless women (and their partners) thanked me for putting this information out there. People have come up to me to talk about pelvic floor exercise balls at the Grey Eagle, Ingles and even during a Tourists game. Writing something that helps people (and improves important stuff such as their self-confidence and sex life) makes me extremely happy. — Anne Fitten Glenn, columnist, Edgy Mama

“This is one of those subjects that moms rarely discuss, but we should. Regaining the strength of your pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and birth can mean the difference between urine-soaked and dry underwear. It also can mean the difference between a mediocre and an intergalactic sex life.”
